This is referred to as "articulated steering" and allows the front axle to be solid allowing it to carry greater weight. Articulated steering provides better maneuverability for a given wheelbase. Since the front wheels and attachment rotate on the same axis the operator is able to "steer" his load in an arc after positioning the machine which can be useful. The tradeoff is that when the machine is "twisted" to one side and a heavy load is lifted high it has a greater risk of turning over to the "wide" side.
Front-end loaders (FELs) are popular additions to compact utility tractors and farm tractors. Compact utility tractors also called CUTs are small tractors typically with 18 to 50 horsepower (37 kW) and used primarily for grounds maintenance and landscape chores. There are 2 primary designs of compact tractor FELs the traditional dogleg designed style and the curved arm style.
Loaders are used mainly for loading materials into trucks laying pipe clearing rubble and digging. A loader is not the most efficient machine for digging as it cannot dig very deep below the level of its wheels like a backhoe can. The capacity of a loader bucket can be anywhere from 0.5 to 36 m31 depending upon the size of the machine and its application. The front loaders bucket capacity is generally much bigger than a bucket capacity of a backhoe loader.
